prairie daze

claiming our daze and our days on the prairie

slung in a sling

what do you do when you fall off the trampoline and can’t run around because you are in pain and your mom feels guilty so she is protecting you more than usual and you want to be outside and it’s too windy for a fire?

you get little sticks, your sister and the glue gun.

you make rafts, add fake fish, then bring them in to float.

red fin fish







2 out of 3 isn’t bad.

and yes, micah has a slight fracture.  he will be in a splint for 3 weeks.  he’s trying to convince himself it’s not too long.  “a week is seven days and so it’s only three of those, so really it’s like 7 days.”  uh, we’ll see how that logic pans out.

    oh dear micah – may you heal quickly…at least it’s not “all the way” summer yet and you still have school to occupy you for a bit – and hugs to mamma too!
    p.s. love the logic – he sounds soooo much like timmy

    Oh poor Micah!
    We have had broken arms twice here, it’s no fun for sure.
    Hope the healing time goes by quickly- I think his logic is precious!!

    Hey Micah!

    I once broke my arm when I was a little boy — I was running after my brother. We were fighting and I wanted to catch him and kick him and whatever else boys want to do to their brothers who are bugging them… My hand hooked on the bunk bed and my hand bent all the way back and I broke a bone in my wrist.

    Micah, I know how much ab broken bone can hurt. Hope you get better real fast.

    Love you so much,
